Could you be an ideal candidate for this unique and nearly invisible orthodontic treatment?
Most people are dealing with some degree of crookedness in the alignment of their teeth. If you’re an older teen or adult who would like to fix overlapping teeth, gaps between teeth, or crowding, our Oakland Park, FL, dentist Dr. Abir Massri can certainly help. Thanks to advanced dental technology, we can offer our older patients a nearly invisible solution for getting a straighter smile. You probably know this orthodontic treatment by the name, Invisalign.
What Invisalign Can Treat
It’s important to understand what Invisalign can and can’t do in order to decide whether this is truly the best approach to getting a straighter smile. In the very beginning, Invisalign was only used to correct more minor issues, but Invisalign’s technology continues to advance more and more so our Oakland Park, FL, general dentist can now correct the following issues in older teens and adults:
- Open bites
- Gaps between teeth
- Slightly crooked teeth
While Invisalign is a great way to straighten most smiles, any issues that require more complex rotations or changes to the alignment of your teeth may benefit more from traditional orthodontic treatment options. This is something to discuss with our dental team when you come in for a consultation.
What You Should Know About Invisalign
Here are some facts that you should know about Invisalign and the treatment process:
- Invisalign is completely metal-free. The aligners are made from clear thermoplastic and fit over your teeth like whitening trays
- The aligners are smoothed at the edges, so they are less likely to cause irritation for the gums and oral tissue
- Invisalign, on average, takes about one year to achieve results. This is for adults because it may take a bit longer for our teen patients. However, people dealing with minor esthetic issues may achieve full results in less time
- You don’t need to visit our office nearly as often for checkups when you get Invisalign (you’ll only need to come in about every 5-6 weeks)
